, illinois, southern indiana, kentucky, west tennessee, all the way into arkansas and mississippi, you haven't even gotten into this event yet. like april 27th of last year when we had the big outbreak of tornadoes, we had these preliminary events. wind squall lines early in the morning. a few tornadoes before the main event came in. so this is going to be a long afternoon. it's going to erupt very quickly really because it's really almost game time for the main event we think as we go through the next hour. we'll start to see some of these cells pop up in a hurry across parts of illinois. this is going to be a dangerous day. what we learn from april 27th is we may have tornadoes here that people need to be underground for. they need to be below ground level. my biggest concern are all these schools in tennessee and kentucky and alabama that are letting students out early. it's a tricky situation because, a, you don't want them out there in a bus going home with tornadoes on the ground. b, are they actually going to a safer structure. anyone in a mobile home today needs to have a plan to go
to get pre-clearance before we can implement voter i.d. like other states, indiana and kansas already have it implemented for this cycle but texas that is to go through this process. the oral argument before the supreme court two months ago, seems like the pre-clearance standard puts us at a disadvantage compared to other states and what is being borne out where texas is a disadvantages to get other states that gets to impose this law to ensure integrity at the ballot box. >> i'm trying to figure out how much it costs. what i can tell is voter doesn't possess any photo identification that the least expensive option is to spend $22 on a copy of the voter's birth certificate. is that down, we are $22 and where we get the $22 for each person. we're talking about $22s a person? >> it is far cheaper than that. that is one of several factual misstatements that is contained in a document filed by the department of justice. what that refers getting a copy of your birth certificate if you feel you need that, tracing back to what we're talking about here. for those that don't possess a driver's
